LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers was having a bit of fun Sunday night as he poured his all into a game against the Houston Rockets.
At one point during the game, he seemingly mimed passing something illicit to his teammate Christian Wood.
“Did LeBron just pass the blunt to Christian Wood?” NBACentral asked on Twitter.
Stephen A. Smith responded with, “Don’t even make me say it…”
Then James himself replied to Smith, saying, “Stay off the weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeedddddd!”
Stay off the weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeedddddd!

This is, of course, a reference to a very famous catchphrase that Smith has said again and again on television throughout his career.
Everything about this, from the actual moment to the responses online, proves that James is feeling confident right now.
Even though his team was down by a point during this viral moment between him and Wood, he was still comfortable and not stressed about the rest of the game.
He would eventually help push the Lakers to a one-point victory over the Rockets.
James was explosive throughout the night, scoring 37 points, 6 rebounds, and 8 assists during his 39 minutes on the floor.
He wasn’t the only one feeling good: Austin Reaves scored 17, including an important three-pointer, and Rui Hachimura chipped in with 11 points.
But it was Anthony Davis who shared most of the glory with James, as he scored 27 points and 10 rebounds.
He was a force on both ends of the court, which is sure to make Lakers fans happy after his latest batch of inconsistency.
